Moodle LMS 4.3 prioritizes security, featuring multi-factor authentication, a “do not track” option for YouTube and Vimeo, and advanced safety measures for a compliant learning environment. This streamlines compliance, enhancing reliability and user trust for organizations.
Sleeker and streamlined Activity Cards
Improved navigation and Course index
Now, you can expand/collapse the course index on the course page, and floating previous and next buttons are included in Book activities, simplifying navigation in large courses for a better learning experience.
Time-saving default site-level settings for activity completion
Thanks to input from the Moodle Users Association, administrators and educators can now establish default activity completion conditions at the site level, streamlining management and increasing efficiency for instructors.
Increase adoption of external tools with LTI improvements
The revitalized course-level LTI tools now offer enhanced functionality, including easier addition and management of pre-configured tools. With improved visibility and dedicated management pages, it’s simpler to adopt valuable LTI tools.

More reports directly within Moodle
Administrators will appreciate the improved flexibility and depth of the Report Builder, streamlining report generation and providing enriched insights as part of our ongoing enhancements. This added flexibility means creating in-depth reports within Moodle, reducing reliance on external tools, and ensuring easier maintenance for a user-friendly experience.
Upgraded TinyMCE editor for improved content creation

This enhanced editor offers a smoother, more precise content creation experience, benefiting both WYSIWYG users and code-savvy educators.
Enhanced grading experience
Educators can enjoy a seamless grading experience with intuitive icons, a sticky footer, and standardized search functions in reports, making grading both accurate and effortless. This streamlined process frees up more time for instruction and student engagement.
